On behalf of the Multicultural Greek Council at Wichita State University, and for the 10th year in a row, the Multicultural Greek Council will host our Annual Shock the Yard Step Show. This event allows organizations around the Midwestern region to show off their ability to step and grants them the opportunity to be named the best step team in the Midwest. The Multicultural Greek Council has held this event annually for the past 9 years and this year we are excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Shock the Yard Step Show and we expect this to be a memorable show.
